Felicity Jones can't handle a horror movie by herself.

The British actress has starred alongside Ed Westwick in hit rom-com Chalet Girl and her latest ventures include romantic drama Breathe In and True Story, which also stars James Franco and Jonah Hill.

She loves watching movies as well as appearing in then, but can't handle anything to scary.

"I don't like scary films. I watched Psycho for the first time recently, alone in the house at night. That was a mistake. I had to call my friend to come over," she laughed to Empire magazine.

Her guilty pleasure is 1995 girly flick Clueless, which shot Alicia Silverstone to fame.

The 30-year-old doesn't like anyone to talk through it though.

"Clueless. I watch it all the time. I know every line. If I'm watching it and someone interrupts I have to pause it. You can't miss a moment," she admitted.

Felicity started her career in TV, before landing a part in 2010 feature film Cemetery Junction.

She's always been interested in watching the latest movies and can still remember the very first one she saw.

"The Addams Family. It started a lifelong crush on Wednesday Addams and Christina Ricci. I like an outsider. I used to go [to the cinema] as a treat with my mum and brother - we'd have pizza - and we'd discuss the film in the car on the way home," she reminisced.
